Well known health care product company, Johnson & Johnson, opened the doors to its North American Global Services Center in the Hidden River Corporate Park in Tampa earlier this week.
The 88,000-square-foot state-of-the-art facility will house 240 employees, to start, with plans to create over 500 jobs total by 2020.
“This new center expands our strong business presence within the state of Florida and we are excited to be a more active member of this vibrant Tampa community,” says Erin Champlin, VP of Johnson & Johnson Global Services
in a prepared statement.
The Tampa office will house several departments including finance, operations, IT, procurement and human resources. Jobs related to these fields will be available in the coming months and years as the company works toward filling all of its positions.
The opening of the new center, comes a little over a year after the company announced its plans to expand its operations in Florida. With incentives from the state, Johnson & Johnson promised to create jobs averaging annual earnings of at least $75,000, as well as a capital investment of $23.5 million to the region.
Currently, the company has approximately 25 positions posted on its website for the new operations center in Tampa. Most of the jobs are in the fields of IT and HR.
